Scope
Articles and advertisements cover housekeeping and gardening, from heating, lighting and kitchen fixtures to furnishing the nursery, baking, choosing gifts and planting trees. The wartime issues include a monthly section entitled 'A Woman's War Time Journal'. From the 1950s onward the magazines have a more nationalistic approach, often featuring members of the Royal family on the front cover.
